This ancient roman bridge was blown up and destroyed in 1945 but the people of Verona rebuilt it from the stone in the river in 1950 . Nice area for photos both on and around the bridge especially looking from the city up into the hills

Go over this little bridge with picturesque views of the river and the small bars/restaurants alongside it, but make sure you walk up to the castle (a 10 min walk). The views of Verona are fantastic.

Don't visit Verona without walking over this beautiful bridge with its beautiful views of the river, castles, and historic buildings.

The best thing about the bridge is that it's adjacent to the Museo di Castelvecchio, so you may as well walk over it. It's nice stop mid-span and look at the river, perhaps listen to the violin players if they are there, but that's it. This bridge is nothing compared to the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, that's for sure!

No trip to Verona is complete without walking via this bridge. I have visited Verona 4 times now and this place is always on my list. The view is to die for with the colourful houses on one side and the hills overlooking the city on the other. You can stand here for ages and be mesmerised by your surroundings!... More

It's a nice old bridge. But, the attraction is the river and everything up and down the river from this bridge. Great photo ops are available. Walk down to the next bridge (Ponte Nuovo) and get some great pictures facing this bridge. The point is to enjoy the river walk and the vistas you can take in by doing so.

When I got close to this amazing bridge and I was literally amazed in front of this beauty, a bridge of extraordinary historical value, also built by the Romans some like 2000 years ago and still working perfectly. The visual spectacle is unique and from the bridge you can take outstanding photos. Top attraction in the city.

You cross this bridge on the way to the amphitheatre. Walking through the arch though not as spectacular as vecchio bridge

The Bridge Ponte Pietra is one of the most central bridges Verona can be proud of. It is an ancient bridge popular for the great views over the Adige. You can take also nice pictures of the castle located on the hill in front of the city centre.
